Surely has to drop down the world rankings now? The man is over-rated.

Wouldn't have thought so. If anything, he'll go further ahead of Djokovic and slightly closer to Nadal due to getting further than those two, Nadal & Djokovic doing worse than last year, and Murray doing better.

Yep, clay is pretty much Murray's worst surface, so its the time of year where a QF is a huge achievement, whereas some of the clay stars haven't performed.
I looked into the eye of the Island and what I saw was beautiful.

If Murray can get to the Semi Final at Wimbledon and match his US Open run of last year, he has a great chance of ending the year in the top 2.

If Federer had lost yesterday, Murray would actually end the tournament as world number 2. He's really close to Federer now, but actually, if Federer can win this, he'll move a lot closer to Nadal too. It's really tight at the top.

Only Monfils can beat Federer out of all the guys that are left. If he wins tomorrow, he'll win it.

if anyone thinks murray is crap on today's performance, then they are very short sighted

gonzalez was awesome today, i've never seen anyone use such a forehand in tennis, it was like a bullet when on target

Not as good as Soderling was against Davydenko. Nearly every shot was a winner.

I agree with neesy here, although both have an amazing forehand Gonzalez on his day can hit winners from both sides from anywhere in the court, the semi will be interesting. Looking forward to Monfils and Federer today.

Federer/Gonzalez final i say.

If Federer and Monfils play as they have throughout the tournament so far then i can see Monfils causing another upset. If he gets the momentum early and the support of the home crowd then we could have a classic.

Find it really strange how he's so gash on clay, considering he spent most of his formative years training in Spain on the clay.

Right again.

I don't think you were right tbh, because you said Murray should win it. Which was never the case. Didn't see any of it this year, but it sounds like he's improving, it is strange it's his weakness though as you say.

Much more interesting now it isn't a foregone conclusion, eh?

del Potro up two sets to one and quite frankly, dominating Federer, who hasn't broken del Potro in the whole match.

Federer needs to play unbelievably to win this match because he's not losing these points; it's been won by del Potro.

Federer won the 4th 6-1, breaking dP twice. He's up 2-0 in the fifth and playing some exquisite tennis right now.

Thank the lord for that. Federer really showed the heart and will of a champion today.

Del Potro was sensational though. I'd be surprised if he doesn't do the career slam if he can master grass. I reckon he could be looking at ten slams with his natural physical attributes and hitting power.

Yeah, I thought that when he was smacking balls right, left and center in the first and third sets. If he can learn to move better, get fitter then he's all the attributes to become a multiple grand-slam champion. I'd hesitate to say that he can win every slam because there are a few young players who should get better, and I think many people are quick to say that about new players because of the bar that Federer has set.

When was the last time there were 5 world-class players all capable of beating each other on any given day? Think Del Potro will break into the top 4 soon, and for the next few years, there'll be nowt between Nadal, Federer, Murray, Del Potro & Djokovic.
